"Our Missoula location is primarily rail served and because we can only unload one car at a time our rail spur presents a challenge for MRL. All we have to do is call MRL and the job gets done." -Corey Skeers, Manager GTS Interior Supply

Freight Claims

At Montana Rail Link, we take the safety and security of your freight seriously. We make every effort to ensure that your product reaches its destination in the same condition as it originated.

  3. If damage exists, please contact a MRL freight claims representative and download the Lading Loss and Damage form and instructions.
  4. Do not unload prior to step 3 above.
  5. Take photographs before handling any lading and during unloading.
